Picking the perfect Roller Blinds: Blockout, translucent or screen blinds?

Roller blinds filter light to provide privacy and ambience that enhances any room. Security Plus Shutters, Doors & Blinds offers three kinds of light filtering blinds; blockout, translucent and screen blinds.

It can be difficult to know which type might be best for your needs. See below for more information on each style.

Blockout Blinds

Blockout fabrics, as the name suggests, are able to block out all sunlight. These blinds are great for rooms that might require darkness, such as bedrooms, lounge rooms or theatre rooms.

For anyone who doesn’t wish to be woken by harsh daylight, or who may work during the night and needs to sleep during the day, these window blinds are a must.

Translucent Blinds

Translucent blinds provide privacy as they are unable to be seen through, whilst also providing a soft filtered light that boosts the atmosphere of any room.

This style of blind is most suitable for kitchens, living rooms or dining rooms as they allow you to experience daylight without direct sun rays and with the comfort of concealment.

Screen Blinds

Screen blinds provide privacy during the day while allowing plenty of light, and still allowing you to see outside. At night, however, your view is obstructed while the home’s interior is visible from the outside. Screen blinds are most popularly paired with Blockout Blinds.

With almost three decades of experience in the industry, Security Plus is here to help you select the right window furnishing options for your home. Contact the expert team today for tailor-made blinds that will elevate your property.
